Who I Am

I was born and raised in Kent, in South East England, not too far from London.

I’ve been lucky enough to call myself a professional portrait photographer and music video director since 2013 and have been fortunate to have worked with some amazing clients in this short time, including: Syco Entertainment; Universal Music; Sony Music; Ben Sherman; The Metro; Olympus; Panasonic; PIXAPRO. I’ve also photographed famous bands and artists such as Pixie Lott, The Vamps, UB40, Nerina Pallot, Boyce Avenue (YouTube phenomenon), and Nick Howard (Winner of ‘The Voice of Germany’), to name but a few on the extensive list.

These projects have taken me all over the world. To further engage with my audience, and to share another side of my life with them, I make video blogs and release cinematic behind-the-scenes videos for my rapidly growing YouTube channel, which reaches well over 32,000 views a month. Across all my social media sites, I have a combined following of approximately 20,000 followers (only 19,000 of those are accounts made by my mum and nan).

I have worked with a range of different brands, road-testing and reviewing all kinds of gear, including camera bodies, backdrops and lighting modifiers to make their products even better. Travelling is where I get to combine all my loves into one; creating memorable images and videos, meeting new and truly inspiring people along the way, and finding new recipes for avocados (no joke). I travel as often as I can because I relish experiencing different cultures and ways of life. My most recent personal trip to India was picked up by an Indian excursion company called ‘Indian Odyssey’ and was offered to lead a photographic tour around the cities of Agra, Lucknow and Varanasi, which was a fantastic testimony to the power of photography.

I am also available for public demonstrations and for speaking at events. This for me is just an extension to what I produce for my YouTube channel. I love to educate and share my passion for this amazing craft and I believe the key to success is progression. I love to create personal work, testing and trying out new techniques that I can use in my commercial assignments. Doing this as often as I have has made me a much better photographer throughout my career. Why retread what other photographers have done before when you can deliver to your client something unique?

This is my main goal.

I think one of the most important elements to creating any form of collaborative art is communication, so let’s chat about your project or enquiry to get the ball rolling.
